prcsibcnfs Ct66rcss. 



IN summing up the work of our Society for the thirteenth 
3^ear in which I have been elected to preside over it, I iim^t 
jQrst express my grateful appreciation of the services of those 
who have the charge of its activities. In matters which have to 
do with the constant use of the Hbrary and exhibition rooms, 
with the furnishing of information or— often more valuable and 
difficult — direction for its search and use, with editorial work, 
with arrangements for the public meetings, with the care of 
the fmances, much painstaking and really unrequited labor i.*> 
constantly done, for wdiicli we sometimes forget to express our 
gratitude. Yet we owe it to such work as this that we are 
able to make progress in our service, present and prospective, 
to the communit}', and to open before ourselves new fields of 
study and of service. 

MEETINGS. 

At the eight monthly meetings of the past year, papers have 
been presented as follows: 

In October, by myself, on "The Fundamental Orders and 
the Charter of Connecticut." 

In November, by Real Admiral Colby M. Chester. V. S. N.. 
retired, on "Some Connecticut Naval Heroes of the Revolu- 
tionary War." 

In December, by Professor Curtis M. Geer, of the Hartford 
Theological Seminary, on " The Development of the Balkan 
Peninsida." 

In January, by the Rev. George L. Clark, of Wethersfield. 
on " Silas Deane." 

In Fel^ruary, by Kdward M. Gallaudet, IJ.. D.. long Presi- 
dent of the National College for the Deaf, on "The Person- 
ality and Writings of Rose Terry Cooke." 

In March, by the Rev. Sherrod Soule, on "Prudence 
Crandall." 



lu April, by Frederick Knapp, on " Reminiscences, Warwise 
and Otherwise." 

In May, by P. Henry Woodward, on "The Tradition of 
Micah Rood." . 

At the October meeting, the Society accepted an invitation 
from the American Antiquarian Society to be represented at its 
centennial anniversary. I had the honor of attending this 
interesting occasion as representing our vSociety and of express- 
ing our congratulations and good wishes. At the April 
meeting, I spoke briefly of the sense of loss which had come 
to us in the death of John Pierpont Morgan, LL. D., to whom 
Hartford, and especially the organizations connected with the 
Wadsworth Atheneum, is so deeply indebted. 

Among the gifts reported and acknowledged by resolutions 
of thanks at our meetings, mention ma>' well be made here of 
the beautiful and valuable Communion silver, consisting of two 
flagons and six beaker-cups, long the property of the second 
church in Colchester (parish of Westchester), presented by 
Mrs. Mary Bulkeley Brainard in memory of her husband, the 
Hon. Leverett Brainard, and his sister, Miss Lucy A. Brainard, 
and also the fine silver "can," once belonging to the Hon. 
Thomas Welles, of East Hartford, presented to us by Miss 
Mary^ Dexter. I notice here also, although it is like those 
others included in the Librarian's report of benefactions, the 
gift of the tall clock called the Thomas Hooker Clock, gener- 
ously made by Mrs. James Collins Seymour. 

PUBLICATIONS. 

The fourteenth volume of our Transactions has been pub- 
lished in the past year, being the full text of the book of 
records which contains the original distribution of the lands in 
Hartford among the settlers, commonly known as the " Hart- 
ford Book of Distributions" of 1639. It contains 632 pages of 
text and 84 pages of index; and, as you know, generous 
provision was made for its transcription, preparation, and 
publication by our Hartford Vice-President. James J. Goodwin, 
LL. D., who fifteen years ago did a like act in regard to the 
first volume of the records of this Town, and to whom we so 
often acknowledge our obligations; while the actual prepara- 
tion, very thoroughly and accurately done, at the cost of much 



painstaking labor, is the work of our Librarian, from whom 
we expect and receive work which honors us as really as it 
honors himself. Progress has been made in the editing of a 
third volume of the Governor Law papers. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

In the past year eleven active members have been added to 
the roll by election; eleven active members have died, two of 
whom were life members; and three active members have re- 
signed. Two ex-officio members have deceased, Chief Justice 
Frederic B. Hall, who died 15 January 191 3, and Judge Ralph 
Wheeler, who died 14 Februarj- 1913; their places have been 
filled by new appointments. Our complete roll now shows 
nineteen ex-officio members (two of whom are also on the list 
of active members), one honorar\' member, nine corresponding 
members, and three hundred and eighty-six active members, 
of whom thirty-six are members for life. We still look for- 
ward to the time when we shall have, as we need, at least five- 
hundred members paying annual dues. 

OBITUARY. 

The active members w-ho have deceased during the past A-ear 
are as follows: 

James Terry, of Hartford, a life-member elected in 1S68 
and for many 3'ears a Vice-President of the Society, well 
known for his interest in historical matters and as an inde- 
fatigable collector, died 17 October 19 [2. 

William Francis Joseph Boardmax, of Hartford, a life- 
member elected in 1888, a student of family history and the 
founder of a fund from the sale of copies of four genealogical 
works relating to that history, died 23 November 191 2. 

John Dean Browne, of Hartford, elected to membership 
in 1890, President of the Connecticut Fire Insurance Com- 
pany, died 23 March 191 3. 

Hon. David Samuel Calhoun, of Hartford, who also was 
elected to membership in 1890, died 7 November 1912. 

Levi Lincoln Felt, a third member resident in Hartford 
and admitted in 1890, Comptroller of the Travelers Insurance 
Company, died S December 191 2. 



Henry A. Stillman, of Hartford, who by reason of the 
great age to which he attained and of his experience as a sur- 
veyor had great knowledge of the topography of this city, 
elected a member in 1891, died 14 December 1912. 

Thomas KnowltOxX Marcy, M. D.. of Windsor, whose 
membership dated from 1892, died 2 March 191 3. 

Miss Antoinette Randolph Phelps, of a distinguished 
Simsbury family, but a resident of Hartford, admitted a mem- 
ber in 1893, died on Sunday last, 25 May 191 3. 

RODOLPHUS L. Webb, of Mystic, a member snice his 
election in 1S96, died 14 March 19 13. 

Charles Henry Noble, of New Milford, whose member- 
ship began in 1905, died 14 December 191 2. 

Hon. James Perry Platt, of Meriden. Judge of the 
United States District Court, son of an honored father, elected 
to membership in 1906, died 26 January 1913. 

financial. 

Our Treasurer's report shows that the admission fees of new 
members and the annual dues of the rest have amounted to 
$838, and that our income from dividends has been about $392, 
making the total of receipts from ordinary sources Si , 230; while 
our ordinary expenses for salaries, insurance, postage, etc., not 
including the purchase of any new books, have been towards 
$1,830; the deficit of some $600 has been nearly met by a dona- 
tion of $500, as in previous years, from our first Vice-President, 
and by special subscriptions from other members amounting to 

$74-50. 

W'e certainly do not need to apologize to our members when 
we ask them, if they find it in their power to do so, to con- 
tribute for its necessary expenses and its urgent needs, more 
than the small sum of the annual dues. Tt is worth more than 
that to themselves and to the conunon wealth. The real value 
of the work of such a .society is not altogether in the future; 
rather, it can be of .ser\-ice to later generations as it docs a good 
and serviceable work now.

iibrarian's 2^eport. 



Afr. President and Members of tJie Society: 

The Society has received during the past \'ear a luiinber of 
noteworthy gifts to its collections. Among them is that of 
Mrs. Mary B. Brainard of Hartford, in memory of her husband, 
Hon. Leyerett Brainard, and his sister, Lucy A. Brainard, of 
the finest old silver communion service in the state. The two 
tankards and six cups composing this service were the gift of 
David and Hannah Day about 1775 to the church in West- 
chester, the second society in Colchester, of which society both 
Mr. and Miss Brainard were natives; and both of whom were, 
as tlie donor now is, members of this Society. 

From Miss Mary Dexter of Danielson a silver can with 
handle that belonged to her great-great-grandfather, Thomas 
Welles of East Hartford (i 692-1 767), whose initials it bears. 

Mrs. Cornelia Seymour of New York has presented to us in 
memory of her husband, James Collins Seymour, the old tall 
clock which has come down in the Hooker family and later in 
the Seymour family through many generations and which has 
long been known as the Thomas Hooker clock. This beauti- 
ful and, from its association, most interesting gift now stands 
in our librar}', the clear tone of its bell marking the passing 
hours for us as it has for generations that have come and gone 
before us. 

John J. Corning of New York has presented us with more 
than 275 bound volumes and a number of pamphlets. They 
are on various subjects; political, historical, liternrx-, tra\-el 
and miscellaneous, and many of them are of considerable 
interest in a library. From J. Coolidge Hills, alwa\s an 
interested member, we have received above 400 books and 
pamphlets and 250 leaflets. Besides miscellaneous publica- 
tions, there are many masonic, religious and historical, includ- 
ing some on the Civil war. Many of the items in this gift are 
local in their oriirin or interest. Our Vice-President. Hon. 



— u 

E. Stevens Henry, has presented a considerable number of 
volumes of valuable publications issued by the United States 
Government. 

A gift has been received from Miss Jessy Trumbull McClellan 
which, from its associations, is a most interesting one. It con- 
sists (in part) of numerous pencil sketches made by Daniel 
Wadsworth, founder of the building in which our rooms are 
located. Some of the sketches were later engraved or litho- 
graphed and examples of the engraved plates accompany the 
sketches. There was also with these the large shawl which 
was Mr. Wadsworth' s constant companion in his later years and 
some other articles of his wearing apparel. He was always 
a man of delicate health and used the utmost care to avoid 
colds. He has been described to me as riding out in his large, 
closed, yellow coach, which was heated by a stove whose pipe 
protruded from one of its windows. At such times he wore, 
as overcoats for men were not then in vogue, a long cloth cape 
over which were other shorter capes of different lengths that 
w^ere separately removable, and perhaps over all would be the 
large shawl now presented to us. A few years since Miss 
McClellan gave us a diar>' kept in 1848, the year of Daniel's 
death," by Sarah McClellan while she was a member of the 
Wadsworth household. 

Through the generosity of its Vice-President James J. Good- 
win the Society issued during the year its fourteenth volume 
of "Collections." This consists of a printing of the volume 
of the "Original distribution of the lands in Hartford among 
the settlers, 1639." This with its introduction and an index 
of more than 18,500 references makes a volume of 736 pages. 
Besides the record of lands this volume contains the earliest 
vital records of Hartford. The only other publication issued 
during the year was the " Annual Report," a pamphlet of 43 
pages. 

Further gifts during the year from Vice-President Goodwin 
are, The Ancestor, 12 volumes; Crisp's Parish registers of 
Berkeley, Cropthorne, Fyfield, Greensteed, I.ambourne. More- 
ton, Ongar, St. Peters, Stapleford and Theydon Mount; 
Howard and Crisp's Visitation of England and Wales, 14 vols., 
and Visitation of Ireland, 5 vols,; The Genealogist, vol. 28: 
Index Library, vols. 43-45, containing Canterbury wills, vols. 
5, 6, Taunton wills; New I{ngland Historic Genealogical 



Register Index of places; Victoria Historv' of the counties of 
Bedford, vol. 3, Lancaster, vols. 6, 7, Somerset, vol. 2, Suffolk, 
vol. I, Surr}^ vol. 4, York, vols. 2, 3. 

Among books of Connecticut interest that have come to 
hand during the year may be mentioned the Proprietors' 
Records of Waterbury, 1677-1761, edited by our member, Miss 
Katharine A. Prichard; Early Silver of Connecticut and its 
Makers by George M. Curtis, also one of our members; Honor 
Roll of Litchfield County Revolutionary Soldiers; Celebration 
of the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of Xorwicii by 
William C. Oilman, and mention should also be made of the 
various state publications and reports received as issued through 
the Connecticut State Library-. Through an exchange, the 
details of which are not yet completed, we have been able to 
add more than two years' numbers to our file of early \Vi?id- 
hani Herald. 

The vital records of various Massachu-setts towns, which we 
obtain as they are issued, now number 131 volumes. Our 
corresponding member, Prof. Charles ^L Andrews, has pre- 
sented us with the Ouide to Materials for American History 
to 1783 in the Public Record Office of Great Britain, volume i, 
of which he is the editor. The United States Government has 
presented an interesting series of Confederate States notes, 
consisting of 112 pieces. 

The manuscripts received have been few in number and as a 
whole meager in quality. They are:

Spalding, C. \V. Spalding memorial. 

Our annual donation of directories of different cities has 
been received from the Hartford Printing Company, Messrs. 
Klihu Geer's sons. This year it consisted of 94 volumes. 

Our genealogical collection has been increased by the addi- 
tion of 45 items, as follows: Adams, Ainsworth, Ballard, 
Beebe, Boyd, Brigham, Bromley, Carter, Cates, Colton, Craw- 
ford, Dodge (2), Flint, Gesner, Gilbert-Carver-Duffield, 
Gilpin, Goble. Goss, Grant, Harwood, Hemenway (2), 
Hildreth, Kidder, Kip, Lake, Lane, Low, Lyon, Martin, 
^lore, Newton, Olmsted, Paine, Pierrepont, Pomeroy, Ruggles, 
Spalding, Spooner, S wetland (2), Tyler. W'olcott (2). 

The unrivaled collection of eighteenth century Connecticut 
imprints in our library has been increased by the addition of 
issues of the years 1717, 1751, 1760, 1772 (2), [1772], 1773, 
[1776], 1779 (2), 1780, [1787], [178S], 1789. 1793, 1796, 
1798, 1800, eighteen in all. 

During the year past the Society has received by gift 7 So 
volumes, 825 pamphlets and 292 miscellaneous items, including 
leaflets and broadsides. The purchases, including seven vol- 
umes and three pamphlets credited to the Goldthwaite Fund, 
eight volumes to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund, four vol- 
umes to the Charles J. Hoadly F'und and three volumes to the 
William F. J. Boardnian Fund, amount to 80 volumes, 73 
pamphlets and seven miscellaneous. Six volumes have been 
added by exchange. This gives a total of 866 volumes. SoS 
pamphlets and 299 miscellaneous items; or a grand total of 
2,063 items. This is more than twice the number of additions 
noted in our last ainiual report. 

The number of our readers during the year has been 3120. 
almost exactly the same as last >-ear. 

A constant and increasing problem is that of endeavoring to 
find room for our books. Unfortunately when our library was 
moved into its new rooms three years ago the number of feet 
of shelvino: in the new rooms was less than it had been in the 



old rooms. It consequence a part of the library is stored in 
large piles in the basement, so that it is impossible to consult 
it; and another part is crowded onto temporary slielving in one 
of the rooms of the annex building, where any particular book 
can be found onl}- under the most favorable circumstances. 
The shelves in our main library room will be filled before the 
close of another year, a second year will see the shelves in our 
second library room filled, while a third or fourth year will see 
every inch of shelf room in our stack room filled. The slielv- 
ing in our newspaper room is already almost filled. Our two 
storage rooms in the annex building already contain all the 
weight that it seems advisable to place on their floors. Our 
cellar is already crow^ded with boxes of books, many of them 
the editions of our publications or of books that have been 
given us to sell. This lack of adequate storage room is already 
the cause of no little confusion in the library. Altogether the 
situation of our library as to shelf room and space available for 
books at the present time is deplorable, and the outlook for 
the future most discouraging. We have many books and 
pamphlets, and are adding to our treasures each year by pur- 
chase and by the gifts of friends; but we lack the needed shelf 
space or even room for storage of any considerable number of 
additions. What can be done is a matter that must soon be 
seriously considered b}- you our members and b\- the officers 
whom you elect. 

At the desire of our President I am printing as a supplement 
to this report an annotated list of Congregational Ecclesiastical 
Societies or Parishes established in Connecticut previous to the 
adoption of our present constitution in iSiS. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Batks, Librarian. 

Hartford, Conti., May 27, 19 13.

prestbent's Ctbbrcss 



As we close to-night the record of another year of the varied 
activities of our Society and of the service which it 
renders to its members and to the communit>' — the fourteenth 
year in which it has been my privileo:e to preside in it — we 
cannot but see that it is a record of stead\' progress and of 
constant labor on the part of its chief executive officer, the 
Librarian and Recording Secretary. His report will include 
so much that is of interest and permanent value, that it falls 
to me but to trace the public events of the year, to make brief 
mention of some work as to which he will speak more fully, and 
to read the necrological record. I may be allowed also to point 
out the general state of our finances as it will presently be 
indicated in the report of the Treasurer. 

MEETINGS. 

At the eight monthly meetings of the past year mention 
has been made of specially notable gifts as they have been 
presented, and papers have been read as follows: 

In October, by Lewis E. Stanton, Esq., of Hartford, on the 
" History of the Highw^ays of Connecticut." 

In November, by the Rev. George L. Clark, of Wethers- 
field, oii " Life in the Early Years of Connecticut." 

In December, by Herbert H. White, Esq., of the Connecti- 
cut Mutual Life Insurance Company, on "British Prisoners of 
War in Hartford." 

In January, by our Librarian and Recording Secretary, 
Albert C. Bates, on "Connecticut's Official Printing during the 
first year of the Revolution." 

In February, by the Rev. Arthur Adams, Ph. I).. Professor 
in Trinity College, on "Jeremy Adams and his Descendants." 

In March, by George S. Godard, M. A., Librarian of the 
State, on the "Evolution of the State Library of Connecticut." 

In April, by Forrest Morgan, M. A., of the Watkinson 
Library, on "New England and the Yazoo Land Frauds. "" 

In May, by John M. Laird, Esc[.. of the Connecticut General 
Life Insurance Company, on "The French Canadian llabiian: '" 



PUBLICATIONS. 

The issue of our last anuual report containing the roll 
of members, as usual, was followed by the publication in a 
separate pamphlet of an annotated list of all the Ecclesiastical 
Societies or Parishes of the Congregational order established in 
Connecticut before the year i<SiS. It was the work of our 
Librarian, and was prepared with his usual accuracy and pre- 
cision and from a study of all the data such as, I venture to 
say, could have been made l>\' no oUier person. Intended as 
a supplement to the annual report, it should rank as a separate 
publication of the Society; it will be of great and increasing 
value both for what it contains and for the key which it pro- 
vides to many historical investigations. 

The third and last volume of the Governor Law Papers has 
now been edited and prepared for the press; its publication 
may be expected at an early day. 

MIDIBHRSHIP. 

In the past year twelve persons have been admitted to active 
membership, and one former member has become a member 
for life; ten active members have died, one has resigned, and 
the names of eight have been dropped by reason of non-pay- 
ment of dues. Our roll now shows the names of four hundred 
and five members, including nineteen c.x-ojficio members ( two 
of whom are also on the list of active members}, one honorary 
meml:>er, nine corresponding members, and three hundred and 
seventy-eight active members; of these latter thirty-six are 
members for life and three hundred and forty-two are 
chargeable with annual dues and have paid into the treasury 
$869 in the past year. We ought not to be satisfied until we 
can have an active membership of at kast five hundred names; 
or, to put it more practically, we ought soon to find at least a 
hundred and sixty men luuI women sufficiently interested in 
the history of Connecticut lo become new members of the 
Connecticut Historical Society. 

onn lARV. 

The active mem!)ers wlio lia\ e deceased during the past year 
are as follows: 

Jonas Cooi.iix'K Hii.i.s. of Hartfonl. a life member, 
admitted in 1SS5, an ollicer ol ihi.^ Society who durijig his life 



and in his last will showed active interest in its welfare, and 
whose skill and judgment were both shown in the remarkable 
collections which he made, a valued citizen, benefactor, and 
friend, died 8 November 19 13. 

Rev. Lewellvx Pratt, D. D., admitted to membership in 
1887, honored and successful as teacher and minister, some- 
time Professor in the Plartford Theological Seminary, and later 
pastor of the Broadway Church in Norwich, died 14 June 1913. 

John Bknja.mix Lewis, M. D., of the Travelers In.^urance 
Company of Hartford, admitted a member in 1889, died 26 
April 1914. 

JosEPPi Churchile Hammond, Jr., of Rockville, a member 
of the Society since 1890, died 22 August 19 13. 

DeWitt Clinton Skieton, Chairman of the Board of 
Directors of the Phoenix Fire Insurance Company of Hartford, 
who became a member in 1890, died 26 December 19 13. 

Francis Waylaxd Havexs, of the Hartford Life Insur- 
ance Company, admitted to membership in 1904, died 21 
October 19 13. 

Harmon George Howe, M. D., an honored and beloved 
physician of Hartford, a member of the Society since 1906, was 
killed in a railroad accident 12 June 1913. 

Harrison Belknap Free.alan, of Plartford, a member 
since 1907, prominent in the life of his city and for some years 
Judge of Probate, died 4 July 19 13. 

Charles Jesse Merrill, of Hartford, who became a mem- 
ber in 1908, an expert in printing with the Case, Lockwood, 
and Brainard Company, died 9 December 191 3. 

Hiram John Messenger, Jr., Actuary of the Travelers 
Insurance Company of Hartford, admitted to membership in 
1908, died 15 January 19 14. 

fixaxcial. 

The Treasurer's report will show a substantial balance on 
hand, due to a donation of $500 from our first \'ice- President, 
as in former years — the recurrence of which calls tor a repeti- 
tion of our grateful thanks— and to special subscriptions from 
other members amounting to S20S. The year's expenses from 
the general fund, including the librarian's salary but cover- 
ing no outlay for the purchase of books, is about S1.S50: 



the income from the dues of members is about $870, and that 
from investments is about S440, giving a total of $1,310. While 
we acknowledge the special gifts which turn a threatened 
deficit into an actual surplus, and do not forget the publication 
fund and the several book funds, we shall be greatly relieved 
when the income of the general fund shall be sufficient to meet 
all general expenses; there will still be good purposes to which 
special gifts may be applied. 

NEKDS FOR FUTURE WORK. 

Besides the almost imperative call for an increase of the 
general funds and the great desirability of providing a larger 
income available for the purchase of books — perhaps even 
before these — the Librarian will tell us that we must have more 
room for the shelving and storage of the volumes and other 
material which we have on hand and which we shall certainly ^ 
receive within a short time. I would suggest that a committee 
be appointed to take the whole matter into consideration and 
to report at its early convenience. 

ANNIVERSARIES. 

The centenary of the War of 18 12, as we call it, brings two 
commemorations which are of special interest to us in Connecti- 
cut: the hundreth anniversary of the Battle of Lake Champlain, 
fought II September 1S14, at which Connnodore McDonough 
gained his notable victory, and the hundredth anniversary of 
the Hartford Convention, which began its session in December 
18 14 and brought it to an end in the following January. The 
Middlesex Count}- Historical Society has taken preliminary 
steps for the commemoration of the former event, and will 
doubtless invite us to share in it; perhaps we also should pro- 
vide for a meeting at which its story ma>- be told. As to the 
latter, I may repeat what was announced at the last monthly 
meeting, that at tlie reijuest of the President of the New Haven 
Colony Historical Societ> and myself, our honored \'ice-Presi- 
dent, Simeon H. Baldwin. LL. 1)., Governor of the State, has 
promised to prepare and present to us a ]")aper on tlie Hartford 
Convention; I need not say this will be a valuable contribu- 
tion to tlie written histor\- of our State and (I may add > an 
earnest of what Governor Baldwin may \et iio in this line of 
study and writing for us and those who sliall come after us.

^librarian's Report. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

The two most important gifts that call for note in this year's 
report are that from the Johnson family of Stratford of a 
quantity of Johnson family papers, and that from Vice-Presi- 
dent Goodwin of an incomplete fde of the Connecticut Jourjial 
for a considerable number of years. Both of these will be 
mentioned more in detail later. 

There have been numerous other gifts which have shown 
the interest taken in the work of the Society by mem.bers and 
others. Among these may be mentioned three large and 
hitherto unknown photographic prints of the Charter Oak. 
taken by N. A. Moore of Hartford soon after its fall (on Aug. 
2 1, 1856), probably on the following morning; an original 
pencil sketch of the tree by Nicolino Calyo of Xew York, 
drawn probably two or three years before the tree fell: an 
engraved w^ood block, and electrotype from it and a smaller 
electrotype of the same tree made for the Charter Oak Life 
Insurance Conipan}-, all these the gift of Charles E. Gross, 
and forming a notable addition to our collection of pictures of 
that famous tree. From Miss Charlotte Tyler an interesting 
picture painted by J. Ropes in 1854, showing the Bliss house 
which formerly stood on what is now Bushnell Park. Hartford. 
Another memorial of the founder of the Atheneum. Daniel 
Wadsworth, the little camphor bottle with its chamois leather 
covering which was his constant companion, came to us from 
Miss Jessy Truml)ull McClcllan of \\\"^odstock. A book of 
considerable local interest, "The Elizabeth Whitman mystery" 
by Charles K. Bolton, was preseiUed by Mrs. Charles H. 
Smith. From our late deceased officer J. Coolidge Hills we 
received his collection of pictorial Civil War envelopes, contain- 
ing the remarkable numl)er of 1379 different issues. A book of 
much Connecticut interest, the " Life of vSilas Deane," was pre- 
sented by its author Rev. George L. Clark. Homer W. Brainard 
has presented a quantity of clippings, mounted in two volumes, 
of the Hartford 'finies' genealogical column, of which he was 



for a time the editor. "The Refugees of 1776 from Long 
Island to Connecticut," presented by its autlior Frederic G. 
Mather of Stamford, is a book whieli gi\cs a great amount of 
information on the sul)ject to which it relates, indicating exten- 
sive research, and is a distinct addition to our knowledge of 
matters and times rehiting to the Revolution, and incidentally 
contains a great deal of genealogical material. The Hartford 
Printing Compaii\- (Klihu Geer Sons; has added 183 volumes 
of directories of different tov/n^ and cities to the large nuinber 
which they have ])resented to us in the last twcnty-five years. 
An interesting paniphlet presented by James Shepard is his 
list of " Connecticut vSoldiers in the Pequot War," which gives 
the authority for the record of each soldier's service. The 
"Diary of Benjamin Palmer" of Stonington, Conn., recenth- 
published and n copy presented, gives a graphic account of a 
young man's experiences during the War of 18 12 in Dartmoor 
and other Englisli prisons. 

A highly valued gift (jf 670 numbers of the Co)niccticut 
JournaL published in Xew Haven, was received from our \'ice- 
President James J. Goodwin. The gift was the more impor- 
tant to us from the fact that we previously had very few early 
New Haven newspapers, although we have the best extant 
files of the Coinccticut Coiocuif oi Hartford, \.\\q Xezi' Lofido)! 
Gazette, the Middtesex Gazette of Middletown and the Wind- 
ham Herald. This file of the JoKrual is an incomplete one. 
The years 1778, 1783. 1790-1S00 contain more than half the 
issues (from 28 to 51 numbers), and the years 1777, 1 779-1 782, 
1784, 1785, 1788, 1789, 1801, 1803, 1807-1809. 1814, 1821, 
contain less than half the issues (from one to 23 numbers), 
and there are several imi)erfect numbers in the file. With a 
single exception this is the most important gift of newspapers 
received in more than half a century. 

Acting on the suggestion of Luke V. Lockwood, one of our 
members residing in Xew York and a well known authority 
on colonial furniture, John Parsons, M. D., of King's Bridge. 
New York, acting as executor, has ]>laced with u> as a deposit 
a numl)er of nu»t inleiesling ])ieces of aniique furniture and 
other liousehold articles. These ])ieces, which are from the 
house in Wether>t"ield, Conn., occupied until her decea>e re- 
centlv by Miss ]->ther Bidwell, are de>ignated by Dr. Parsons 



as the " Porter-Beldeii Collection," Ainonc^ them are a hii^h- 
boy,- low-boy, chest-oii-chest, one -large and two small Dutch 
tables, small stand with tip top. two Dutch chairs, four Chip- 
pendale chairs, curious cradle, bedstead, three mirrors, two 
embroidered coats of arms — the Belden and Butler families. 
These have been placed in our north room, and the beauty of 
some of the pieces has attracted no little attention. 

The number of readers using the library during the \-ear 
was 3,425, an increase of about ten per cent, of the number 
using it during the previous \ear. 

There being no large gifts of books this year, as there was 
last, to swell the accessions, the total for the year is much 
smaller than for last year. The donations have been 458 
volumes, 385 pamphlets and 50 miscellaneous; the purchases 
84 volumes, 112 pamphlets and six miscellaneous, and the 
additions b}^ exchange two volumes and 30 pamphlets. This 
makes a total of 544 volumes, 527 pamphlets and 56 miscel- 
laneous, or a grand total of 1,127 items. Included in the above 
purchases are seven volumes credited to the Lucy A. Brainard 
Book Fund, five volumes to the Charles J. Hoadly Fund, three 
volumes to the William F.J. Boardman Fund and two volumes 
to the Dr. Gurdon W. Russell Fuud. 

The above figures of accessions are for printed items only. 
In addition to these the number of manuscripts added exceeds 
the number of printed items, the letters alone being upwards 
of 1,400 in number.

Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund are:

*' Names, Arrival and Departure of Yankeys & Pedlars Began 
Aug. I, 1820" [to March 1821]. Kept at Wadsworth's tavern, 
Hartford. 

Genealogies of the following families, thirty-four in all, 
have been added to our collection: Babbitt, Ballard, Barney, 
Bliss, Brigham, Brown, Clark, Colburn-Coburn, Cowdrey, 
Cowles, Davis, Dickinson, Frazier, Grant Association, Har- 
mon, Hine, Holman, Hiinnings, Keim, Lindsay Association, 
Merwin, Pope, Palmer, Richardson (2), Seeley-Vail Ancestry, 
Sheldon, Shurtleff, Smith, States, Tyler, Upham, Varick, 
Wessels, Wright. 

Our collection of early Connecticut imprints, in addition to 
the volumes of newspapers mentioned elsewhere, has been 
increased by issues of the following years: 1760, 1761, [1764], 

1770 (2), 1774 (2), 1775, 1776. I7S6 (2\ 1787. 1789 (3;, 

1793 (2), 1796, 1798 (4), 1799, 1800, [1800?]. These number 
25, one of them a leaflet, one a broadside, and nine are 
almanacs, four of which are imperfect. 

xAn effort has been made during the year to add to our 
interesting files of early Connecticut almanacs. Our alread\- 
unrivaled collection has been increased by the addition, down 
to the year 1850, of 47 issues, nine of which are of the 
eighteenth century, and four of these imperfect. 

This Society published in 1909 the first volume of a series of 
Connecticut Vital Records, comprising records of the towns of 
Bolton and Vernon. During the past year the second and 
third volumes of this series, comprising the records of Norwich 
from 1659 to 1848, have been published by the Society of 
Colonial Wars in the State of Connecticut. A fourth volume, 
to be published by a committee of this Society, is now under 
consideration. 

The New York Historical Society has completed in seventeen 
volumes its valuable publication of abstracts of wills fdcd in 
New York City; and the State of New Jerse.v ha^ publislied in 
three volumes an index of the wills in that state. Copies of 
each have been presented to us. The series of sixteen volumes 
of historical and genealogical magazines pul)lished by ICbeii 
Putnam has been completed. After long waiting a copy of 



John O. Austin's " One hundred and sixty allied families " has 
at last been secured. We receive each \'ear from the Smith- 
sonian Institution numerous valuable books and pamphlets, 
thus adding to our almost complete file of that institution's 
publications. 

Our publications during the year have been two in number, 
the "Annual report for 1913," a pamphlet of 40 pages showing 
the work of the vSociety for the \-ear; and the " List of Con- 
gregational 'jcclc^iastical societies established in CouTiecticut 
before October 18 18 with their changes." This pamphlet 
of 35 pages will, it is believed, prove of much assistance to 
persons engaged in searching the early records of the different 
societies and towns of the state. The following item, acci- 
dentally omitted in preparing the "copy" of that pamphlet 
for the printer, may now be inserted. 

WOLCOTT SociHTV. Established October 1770 as Fanningbury Society 
in Fanniiigtoii and Waterbury probably by division of the First 
Society in each of those towns. Part of Farniington including 
this Society incorporated October 1779 as Southington. Parts of 
Southington and Waterbury including this Society incorporated 
May 1796 as Wolcott. 

It has been expected that another volume of our "Collec- 
tions " would be well along in the press before this time But 
unexpected difficulties that have been encountered in making 
arrangements about the printing have prevented this. 

There have been 125 volumes bound or rebound during the 
year, including several sets of .serial publications. Cloth has 
been the material most used. The question of binding is an ever 
present one. And it is not how much is tliere which might be 
bound; but how little is there that must be bound to save it 
from injury. If sufhcient funds were available several thousand 
dollars could well be .spent in binding. 

The diary of Lieut. Thomas Minor, one of the first settlers 
of Stonington, covering the period 1653 ^<> 16S4, was printed 
fifteen years ago. The diary of his son, Dea. ^Lanassah Minor, 
also of Stoningtdu. covering the ]u^ri(Hl 1696 to 1720. is still 
extant and unpubii>lied. During the year this has been loaned 
to the Societ>- for cop\ ing and a copy has already been made 
of the greater part of it, although the hided ink and cramped 
handwriting makes this slow work. It coulains many interest- 
ing: items. 



The Society has for many years been the owner of tlie 
original manuscript of "An Herauldical Essay Upon the 
Surname of Miner," which is V)eHeve(l to have been drawn up 
at the Herald's College in England about 16S3 and sent, at his 
request, to Lieut. Thomas Minor of Stonington. 

All of the shelves in our main library room are now com- 
pletely filled; and the process of weeding out the least 
frequently used books and removing them to our north room 
has begun. This must henceforth be done each time a new lot 
of genealogies or New England local histories is added to our 
library. And, as stated in my last report, one more year will 
see all of the shelves in the north room filled. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

prcsibcnt's Clbbrcss 



THE close of each year of our Society's life calls for a review 
of its activities and a consideration of its work — not only 
that which has been accomplished but also that for which 
some preparation has been made. Our chief executive officer, 
as without hesitation I call him, the Librarian and Recording 
Secretary, tells us, in such wise that it forms a part of our 
history, of the progress which we are making, of the gifts 
which we have received, of the purchases which we have been 
able to make, of the service rendered to our own members and 
to the public, and of the possibility of future activity. In a 
few^ words I shall speak of some matters of detail, and ven- 
ture upon some suggestions. -~' — 

MEETINGS. 

At the monthly meetings of the year, papers have been 
read as follows: 

In October, by Col. Francis Parsons, on ** George Washing- 
ton, his Philosophy and Ideals." 

In November, by Mrs. Franklin G. Whitmore, on "Some 
Old Letters of Virginia Families." 

In December, by Meigs Heywood Whaples, on his ancestor, 
Return Jonathan Meigs. 

In January, it being the centenary anniversary of the 
adjournment of the Hartford Convention, by our Vice-Presi- 
dent, Simeon Eben Baldwin, LL. D., on that Convention and 
matters connected with it. 

In February, by George Q. Whitney, Esq.. on "Southern 
Prison-pens in the War of the Rebellion." 

In March,, by the Rev. Dr. John Coleman Adams, on 
"Simon de Montfort and Representative Go\-ernment." 

In April, by Francis Hubert Parker, ICsq.. on "The 
Military ^Larine of Connecticut." 

In May, by President Flavel Sweeten Luther. LL. D.. of 
Trinity College, on " Rene Descartes." 



10 

Each of these papers has called forth, from one or more 
members present, discussion of its topic or a statement of some 
connected facts, often showing a wide interest in the historical 
matters which have been presented or to which reference has 
been made. We owe appreciative thanks to our Committee on 
Papers, which has provided these essays and articles, and to 
those who at its invitation have addressed us. 

At the business meetings, besides the needed attention to 
routine matters, mention has been made of specially notable 
gifts, and the remarks of those present have often shown how 
intelligent an interest they have created or awakened. Three 
gifts merit notice here, though a full account of them will be 
given by the Librarian, representing as they do different 
departments of antiquities, and thus bringing instruction and 
enjoyment of different kinds. Miss Alice Welles of Xew York 
has sent us her father's remarkable collection of autographs of 
distinguished Americans from about 1820 to 1S60; Mr. John 
R. Tracy of Rhode Island has presented several fine pieces of 
furniture, once the property of General Henry Champion of 
Westchester in this State; and the surviving daughters of the 
late Isaac W. Stuart have presented a portrait and a painting 
of more than usual value. 



OBITUARY. 

We have lost one Corresponding Member by death, Robert 
Ai.ONzb Brock, of Richmond, Virginia, Corresponding Secre- 
tary of the Virginia Historical Society and editor of its i r 
volumes of Collections, Secretary of the Southern Historical 
Society and editor of 23 volumes of its papers, and a prolific 
writer of genealogical, historical, and statistical articles. At 
the time of his death, 12 July 19 14, his name had been on our 
roll for twenty-eight years. 

vSeven active members have also died, namely: 

Thom.vs Trumbl'LL, of Hartford, for many years a Secretary 
of llie Hartford Fire Insurance Company, elected a member in 
1S92, died 16 May 1915. 

Willis I. Twitchkll, of Hartford, deservedly honored in 
the connnunity for his service in the public schools, admitted 
to mtinbership in IVS93, died 19 October 19 14. 



Edgar Thaddeus Wellks, of New York City, son and 
editor of the diary of Secretary Gideon Welles, a member 
since 1S94, ^"^^^ 22 Augusi 19 14. 

DwiGHT Canfield Kilbourx, of Litchfield, Clerk of 
Courts in Litchfield County, elected in 1901, died 28 October 
1914. 

Stiles Judsox,. of Stratford, prominent in the political 
life of the State, elected to membership in 1905. died 25 Octo- 
ber, 1914. 

Leonard Morse, of Hartford, sometime Judge of the City 
Court, admitted a member in 1907, died 2 April 19 15. 

Charles Augustus Quinxy Norton, a member since 
1907, died 2 February 19 15. 

membership. 

Besides these losses by death, we have to record in the past 
year the resignation of seven members. Our gain by election 
has been but of four active members; so that our roll contains 
now. 386 members. This number includes 18 cx-officio mem- 
bers (one of whom is also on the list of- active members), one 
honorary member, eight corresponding members, and 360 active 
members; of these latter 35 are members for life and only 325 
are chargeable with annual dues; they have actually paid into 
the treasury $787 in the past year. We are yet a good wa>- off 
from the five hundred active members of whom I have spoken 
more fhan once as a possibility if not a necessity. It think it 
might be well to ask the Standing Connnittee to devise some 
practical plan for calling into our membership men and women 
who would find it to their advantage to become members of 
our Society and who would at the same time help the Society 
in its important work. 

publications. 

Our last annual report was made a valuable document by its 
full enumeration of gifts which we had received, especially- in 
the William Sanuiel Johnson Papers. The fifteenth volume of 
our Collections has been published during the year now closed; 
it is the third and last volume of the Ciovernor Law papers, 
and is of real and varied interest. I have asked the Libraii.in 



to transcribe into his report the greater part of the note ^vhich 
as editor he has appended to the vohime, partly to justify our 
pride in the value of those recent publications as they are a con- 
tribution to the materials for our Colonial history, and partly to 
encourage us to continue this which is by no means the least 
important part of our work and which admits of almost indefi- 
nite extension. He has alread}- entered on the work of prepar- 
ing a new volume, which, following the chronological order. 
will contain papers relating to the administration of the first 
Governor Wolcott. 

FINANCIAL. 

The Treasurer's report will show that, without including the 
generous donation of $500, for which we have again to thank 
our first Vice-President, we close the year with a fair balance 
to our credit. From admission fees and annual dues we 
recei\'ed $82 less than last year; but from the special subscrip- 
tions we had $82 more than last year; so that our receipts from 
members were exactly the same in each of the two years. 
Dividends and interest have brought us $124 le.ss than a year 
ago, but current expenses have been $90 less. We are sure 
then we cati pay all charges for the coming year, and we hope 
that at the end we can carry over even a larger balance than 
we are carrying over to-day. 

With ever increasing opportunities for collecting and con- 
serving the material for history and for putting that material 
at the service of students and scholars, with an ever quickening 
enthusiasm in the community for that which is the s[>ecial 
concern of such societies as ours, and with ever renewed op- 
portunities of justifying to the connnon wealth our calls for its 
encouragement and help, we make up the record of the closing 
year and begin that of a new twelvemonth.

librarian's 2\cport. 



Mr. Preside fit and Meinbcrs of the Society: 

This meeting closes the first year of the fourth quarter 
century of the vSociety's existence since its reorganization in 
May, 1839, and marks ninety years since its estaVjlishment in 
1825. It is one of the oldest historical societies in the country. 
And while not so large or so wealthy as some of the others, it 
nevertheless possesses a good library, a fine collection of man- 
uscripts and an interesting collection of historical objects. Its 
series of publications is a worth}- one, and it ranks well in the 
brotherhood of the historical Societies of the country. 

The third and final volume of " Correspondence and Docu- 
ments during Jonathan Law's Governorship of the Colon}- of 
Connecticut, 1741-1750," has been issued as volume fifteen of 
our " Collections," forming a book of 350 pages. The follow- 
ing is extracted from a concluding note in the volume: 

These volumes with the two voUmies of Governor Joseph Talcott 
papers which have preceded them, form an unbroken series of official 
correspondence coverin,i^ a quarter of a century up to 1750; a series 
which has not been and perhaps cannot be duplicated b}- any other of 
the American colonies for the same period. They show that it is not, 
although it has sometimes been so considered, a barren period of colonial 
historv-; but one that is full of interest, activity and important 
happenings. 

These volumes also show the wealth of original manuscript material 
which the Connecticut Historical Society possesses; for only S9 out of 
the 8S1 letters and documents contained in the three volumes are taken 
from other sources than the Society's archives. 

Action has already been taken by the Society towards pub- 
lishing another volume of "Collections," which will contain 
the correspondence and documents of Roger Wolcott, who was 
governor of Connecticut for the three years and a half next 
following Joiiathan Law's death, together with some other 
Wolcott family papers. 

The only other publication issued during the year was the 
"annual report," of 44 pages, containing the usual matter 
relative to the Societv and its doings. 



- — u 

Our Wadsworth Papers, letters and copies of letters writteu 
by and to Col. Jeremiah Wadsworth and his associates, had up 
to this time been i)ut poorly assorted and arranged. During 
the year the letter books containing copies of letters written 
by Wadsworth have been gathered into one lot; and the letters 
written to him and his associates, with some actually written 
and sent by him, have been gathered into one chronologically 
arranged series. How many they number we do not know; 
but if allot the letters, which are unfolded and laid flat, and the 
letter books were placed one upon another the}- would make a 
pile about seven feet in height. The period they cover is from 
1776 to 1800, with a few of earlier and later dates, and 
naturally the letters are most numerous during the period of 
the Revolution when Wadsworth was acting as Commissary 
for the army. Letters written by many of the famous men of 
the period from Washington down are to be found in this 
correspondence; and in it is the material for a history of the 
commissary department of the revolutior.ary army — at least of 
the army's northern department. A considerable part of these 
papers were the gift a few years since of our late member and 
officer, Jonathan Flj-nt Morris. 

A beginning has been made in arranging the Johnson family 
letters, the gift of which was noted at some length in the last 
annual report. It is proposed to arrange these in several 
.series, with the letters in each series placed in chronological 
order^ Letters and documents relating to the Mohegan Case 
and about 450 letters written by or to William Samuel Johnson 
have already been arranged and a card written for each show- 
ing by and to whom a letter or document was written and its 
date. 

A check list of almanacs published in Connecticut down to 
and including the year 1850 was issued about a year ago. 
This list notes S73 issues; this Society's library being credited 
with 491 of them, 195 of these being eighteenth century issues. 
Since the pnblication of this list 39 issues have been added to 
our collection, three of them being eighteenth century issues, 
and seven of them additions to the printed list itself. 

In June of 19 14 a company of memlK-rs of the Society of 
vSons of the American Revolution with their friends made a 
pilgrimage over the route followed by Gen. George Washington 



in June, 1775, from Philadelphia, when on his way to take 
command of the American Army at Cambridge. 

As the General' ^ route la\- through Hartford, and as he wa.--. 
here met and possibly entertained by his friend, Col. Jeremiah 
Wadsworth, whose home was on the spot where the rooms of 
the Society are located, it seemed proper that the pilgrims of 
139 years later should be entertained here with some memorials 
of the times they were celebrating. The following werc 
exhibited on the occasion: 

Several letters (A. L. S.) written by Jeremiah Wadsworth during the 
Revolution, 

Several letters (L. S.) written by George Washington to Jeremiah 
Wadsworth during the Revolution, one of them carrying a fine impres-

Numbers of the principal Inhabitants of this Colony," proclaiming 
George III. as king over Connecticut, January 22, 1761.

called "Connecticut's Declaration of Independence." "This was printed

cut, and is signed by Jonathan Trumbull, the Governor.

An interesting and valuable collection of autograph letters 
was received from Miss Alice Welles of New York City, who 
presen-ted them on behalf and by direction of lier father, the 
late Edgar T. Welles, for many years a member of this Societ>-. 
This collection, the result of many years' gathering by Mr. 
Welles, consists of about 2,250 letters, 100 short notes. 50 
commissions and miscellaneous documents, a number of them 
on parchment, and some separate signatures. The dates 
covered by these letters are the p^eriod 1S20 to 1S60. with a 
small number both earlier and later than that period. Letters 
from (it would seem) nearly every important man of those 
times, particularly those in public and political life, are to be 
found in the collection. And frequently there ir. not only one 
but several letters from some well known person, perhaps a 
dozen from each of several presidents, or a like number from a 
high naval officer or a United vStates senator. In all there are 
autograph letters or notes from above 700 individuals, sketches 



of whom are found in Appleton's " Cyclopaedia of American 
Biograph}'." A number of books and pamphlets also received 
from Miss Welles are of interest and value to the library. 

A gift from Miss Caroline M. Hewins of more than 40 
volumes, with a few that the Society previously possessed, 
make an unusual collection of the curious little "gift books" 
which appear to have been so popular between fift>' and 
se\'enty-five years ago. The collection includes such Hartford 
publications as The box of jewels, A bridal gift, The hare- 
bell, The ladies' vase, The moss-rose. New testament. The 
voice of flowers, The weeping willow, Devotions for children 
and youth, The parting gift, Songs of the fireside. 

An important volume of documents, edited and presented ])y 
our member, G. W. F. Blanchfield, is "Letters written b\' 
Ebenezer Huntington during the American Revolution." 
These letters, some 70 in number, give valuable first hand 
information and opinions of one in the service. In this con- 
nection it may be noted that the Society possesses a valuable 
collection of letters written during the Revolution by various 
members of the Huntington family. 

Thirt3'-nine genealogical works, about the usual number for 
one year, have been added to our collection. They are: 
Adams, Bacon, Barnum, Bartlett Association, Belknap, Blin. 
Brace, Chapin, Church, Clarkson, Coddington, de Forest, 
French, Fuller, Gildersleeve, Grow, Harvey, Horton, Hovey, 
Hull, Jones, Judson, Litchfield, Macfarlane, Merriman, Osburn 
pedigree, Proctor, Reynolds Association, Rowland, Ryder. 
Scranton, Stevens, Towner, \'anderlip. Wadhams, Ward, 
Washburn (2), Yale. 

The eighteenth century Connecticut imprints added to the 
librar}' during the 3'ear are of the dates of 1757, 177-. i77v^- 
[1777], 1781, 1782, [1783?], 17^9. 1790, 1792. [1793-]. 179^^. 
^797) 1799 (3). 1800 — seventeen in all. 

Some time since, the Bureau of Railway Economics of 
Washington, D. C, made a careful list of our various railroad 
company reports, among which were found niAiiy early and 
rare ones. Since then the bureau has from time to time sent 
additions to our collection from its duplicates. These, with 
above 150 reports presented by one of our members, have 
increased our collection by more than 22^ items during the 
year. 



The following valuable gifts were received from John R. 
Tracy of Jamestown, R. I.: three chairs ^alikej Chippendale 
style, one chair Dutch style, large old liquor chest divided into 
fifteen compartments with two large green glass bottles remain- 
ing, small brown glazed pottery barrel, all formerly the 
property of the Revolutionary officer, Gen. Henry Champion, 
and formerly in his home in Westchester Society, Colchester. 

Among other valuable gifts to the library may be noted, 
from Vice-President James J. Goodwin, the \'ictoria History 
of the Counties of England, Hertford vol. 3, Lancaster vol. ;S; 
Worcester vol. 3,- and indexes to Bedford, Hampshire and 
Surry; the Genealogist, vol. 30; the Index Library vols. 46, 
47, 48, comprising Devonshire wills and administrations vol. 2, 
Inquisitiones post mortem for Gloucestershire vol. 6, Wiltshire 
inquisitiones post mortem 132 7- 137 7; from Dr. Arthur Adams, 
Appleton's C3'clopedia of American Biography; from Prof. 
Henry P. Johnston, his new life of Nathan Hale; from the 
Long Lsland Historical Society, the Records of Jamaica, L. L,

Simeon North of Berlin, first official pistol maker of the U. S.:

Rev. W. DeLoss Love, his Colonial Histor}- of Plartford; from 
the Hartford Printing Co., Elihu Geer Sons, one hundred and 
seventy-two volumes of directories of various cities in all parts 
of the country; from the New Haven Colony Historical 
Society, volumes 7 and 8 of its Papers; from Rev. William C. 
Knowles, his Bygone days in Ponsett-Haddam; from the 
Rhode Island Historical Society, a list of Rhode Island

versary of First Church of West Hartford. A portrait in oil 
(said to have been painted by Earle) of Stephen Bulkelcy of 
Hartford, who died in 1S40, the owner for some years of the 
ground on which the Charter Oak then stood, and a picture in 
oil by Henry Bryant of the Charter Oak with the Bulkelcy 
house in the background were presented by Mr. Bulkeley's 
granddaughter Isabel Winthrop Stuart of Ham])ton. N. H. 
She also presented a goblet turned from wood of the Charter 
Oak and a roll of thin wood veneer cut from the Charter Oak. 

Other books of interest include Ve church and parish of 
Greenfield by George H. Merwin, Bei;innings oi Colonial 



Maine by Heury S. Burrage, Early Massachusetts marriages, 
vol. 3, by Frederic \V. Bailey. 

The necessity for increased slielving and room for our library- 
continues as heretofore, except that it becomes greater with 
each passing year. There is now no suitable space available 
for properly arranging additions to an}' class of books as they 
come to the librar}-. Instead they must be laid in piles, tuckt^d 
away in odd corners or placed at the back of a shelf behind 
other books. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

^, 



WE look to our Librarian for the chief address of our an- 
nual meeting; his reports on the accessions for the year 
and on the results of the investigations which he has made are 
always full of interest and possessed of permanent value. He 
will tell us of the progress which we are making, and give us 
inspiration for further study and for continued work. We await 
also this year the report of the Treasurer with great .satisfac- 
tion, knowing that we have no reason to hear of a deficit in 
our accounts. I shall not need to detain you long, though I 
can tell of good reasons for the interest which has been shown 
in our public meetings, and of encouragement for advance in 
carrying out the purposes of the Society; while on the other 
hand I must present a long necrology, including the names of 
men and women whom we are sorry to lose from our 
membership. 

MEETINGS. 

At the regular meetings of the year, the following papers 
have been read: 

In October, b}' P'orrest Morgan, I^I. A., of the Watkinson 
Library, on "The Pilgrims' Landfall."

Society, on " Jared Ingersoll. Stamp-master, and the Stamp-

The Librarian's report will make mention of the gifts which 
have been announced at the meetings, with other matters of 
interest. I may note here that three members of the Society, 
specially appointed in reply to an invitation, attended on the 
first day of May the opening exercises of the 250th anniver- 
sary of the settlement of Newark, New Jersey, by colonists 
from Connecticut. 

OBITUARY. 

During the past year, twelve members have died: 

James Junius Goodwin, LL. D., a life member admitted in 
1887, for twenty-two years one of our vice-presidents, died 
at his Hartford home 23 June 19 15. His services to this com- 
munity had been many and various; his interest in matters 
historical and genealogical had been wide and intelligent; his 
assistance in investigation had been liberal and continuous; and 
in particular his care for furthering the welfare of this Society, 
for anticipating its wants, and for setting forward its work, 
had been unceasing and generous, shown in many ways which 
are matter of record and in man}* ways which he did not allow 
to become known. His memor}^ will be perpetuated by the 
fund endowed in his name and at his request, of which men- 
tion will be presently made. 

James Nichols, in his earlier life a lawyer and judge, later 
President of the National Fire Insurance Company of Hartford, 
admitted to membership in 1890, died 29 April 19 16. 

William Waldo Hyde, sometime Mayor oi Hartford, a 
member of the bar, highly and deservedly honored by his 
fellow-citizens, a member since 1S91, died 30 October 191 5. 

Theodore M. Maltbie, of Hartford and Granby. elected 
a member in 1893, died 13 November 19 15. 



Charles Townley Martin, of Hartford, a life-member, 
admitted in 1894, died 18 March 19 16. 

George Munson Curtis, a member since 1S99, prominent 
in the industrial and civic life of Meriden, who had made an 
exhaustive study of the histor}- and work of the silversmiths 
of Connecticut, died 28 August 191 5. 

Mrs. Harriet Eliza Goulden Whitmore, of Hartford, 
whose membership dated from 1902, a student of Colonial 
History and honored in the Society of Colonial Dames, died 30 
June 1915. 

Edward W. Hooker, lately Mayor of Hartford, well known 
in the community, elected a member in 1904, died 3 Septem- 
ber 1915. 

JA3IES LeBaron Willi a:ms, of Brooklyn, N. Y., admitted 

to membership in 1905, died about six months ago. 

Sylvester Clark Dunham, President of the Travelers 
Insurance Company, prominent in the activities of this city, a 
member of this Societ}' since 1908, died 26 October 19 15. 

Mrs. Ella Myers Peets, of New Haven, for six years a 
member, died 29 September 19 15. 

Mrs. Lillie Gunn Smith, of Washington, Conn., admitted 
to membership four years ago, died in January 19 16. 

membership. 
Besides the loss by death of these members, two of whom 
were life members, we must note that three members have 
resigned and that the names of four have been dropped from 
the list, while one annual active member has become a life 
member, and eight members have been added by election. 
The whole number of names on our roll is now 367, of whom 
18 are members ex officio (one of these being also entered as an 
active member), one is an honorary member, eight are corres- 
ponding members, and 341 are active members; of these latter 
34 are members for life, and 307 are chargeable with annual 

dues. 

financial. 

It is a matter of great satisfaction to make mention of the 
large increase of the funds of the Society during the past year. 



In November there was announced the receipt of $20,000 from 
the wife of our late vice-president, James Junius Goodwin, in 
his name and in accordance with his wishes; in January, the 
receipt of almost $5,300 from the residuary estate of the late 
Edward Simons, of Hartford; and in May, the receipt of 
$1,017 as a designated portion of the residuary estate of the 
late Mrs. Sophia Fidelia (Hall) Coe, widow of Levi E. Coe, of 
Meriden. The total sum of about $26,300 has much more 
than doubled the amount from which the Society can derive an 
income for its general expenses and for the purchase of books. 
Last year we could count on the interest of some $16,800 for 
these purposes; next year the income of about $43,100 will be 
at our disposal. We are thus relieved from our annual anxiety 
as to a deficit, which (as you will remember) has been averted 
for several years by the gift of $500 from Mr. Goodwin and 
by special subscriptions to the jimount of some $300 — making 
together the interest at five per cent, on $16,000 or at four per 
cent, on $20,000 — :and we shall be able to carry on our work, 
not indeed without the constant application of economy, but 
with more " lee- way " than for several years past. And as we 
thus express our satisfaction at the immediate benefit which 
comes to us from these gifts, we shall not fail to appreciate the 
proof of confidence in our work, in its value, and in the neces- 
sity of continuing it, which is thus shown and which we may 
well expect will be further shown as the years pass on.

iibrarian's 2^eport. 



Mr. President ^nd Members of the Society: 

It is only a repetition of what has been done in previous 
reports to again call attention to the lack of room for the 
collections and the general work of the Society. We are 
being strangled by lack of space. There are probably as 
many bound volumes and unbound pamphlets in storage, 
either on temporary shelves in the annex building or in piles 
or boxes in our basement rooms, as there are shelved and 
available for use in the regular library rooms. So that prac- 
tically one half of our library cannot be used. Of course the 
volumes in storage are those that would be least often con- 
sulted. Yet occasions are constantly arising when it Ts neces- 
sary to tell a reader that we possibly, or it may be certainly, 
have some book that he wishes to consult; but that it is stored 
away^ where it cannot be found for use. Almost every foot of 
space on the shelves in the regular library rooms is now filled. 
Books and pamphlets are to be found in piles on the floor or 
tucked away in odd corners of our stack room. There is 
practically no room for further growth of the library, and the 
store rooms are filled almost to their capacity. Under these 
conditions it is not possible for the readers or the librarian to 
work to the best advantage or to give the best service. What 
is to be done ? 

The only publication issued during the year was the annual 
report, a pamphlet of 42 pages. A vol nine of Correspondence 
and Documents during the Governorship of Roger Wolcott, 
November 1750 to May 1754, has been prepared and is now in 
the press. This is to form the sixteenth volume of the 
Society's series of Collections. Above 300 pages, comprising 
more than half of the volume, have already b^en printed. In 
preparing the "copy " for this volume, letters and documents 
were obtained outside the Society's library from nine different 
sources in the cities of Boston, Hartford, New York. Washing- 
ton and London. The volume will have much to relate about 



1I^ 

that strange affair of the Spanish boat which put into the 
harbor of New London in distress and lay there many months, 
while there was much argument over her status and her com- 
manders rights before her cargo was reshipped to Spain. 

Thirty-seven volumes and three pamphlets from the library 
of our late Vice-President James J. Goodwin have been pre- 
sented to us by Mrs. Goodwin. They are all historical books 
and most of them Knglish works; although among them are 
the Salisbur}-s' Family Histories and Genealogies and several 
volumes of the New York Society of Colonial Wars and Sons 
of the Revolution publications. The English books include: 

Bacon, N. Annals of Ips^viche. 

Parish registers of Bobbingworth, Essex. 

Cumniington and Warner. Braintree and Booking.

Carthew, G. A. History of West and Kast Bradenham.

from 1733 to 1 74 1. It is edited and preceded with an histori- 
cal introduction by Dr. Charles M. Andrews of Yale Univer- 
..sity. A copy of this has been presented to us. Francis 
Edward Brownell, formerly of Hartford but now residing in 
Atlanta, Ga., has given us about 180 theatre progrannnes. 
posters and play bills of about 1S50 to 1S55, nearly all of thcin 
of entertainments given in Hartford. From Oscar Wegelin 
we have received a copy of his book on Jupiter Hannnon, the 
first American negro poet. It contains a reproduction, from 
the unique original in our library, of Hammon's "Address to 
Miss Phillis Wheatly, Ethiopean Poetess," dated Hartford, 
August 4, 1778. The Address is also reproduced in the sketch 
and bibliography of " Phillis Wheatly " and " Six Broadsides " 
relating to her, copies of which have been proented to us b\- 
their author and publisher, Charles F. Heartman. From 
Trinity College we have received "A list of current periodicals 
in the libraries of Hartford," which is at once proving its 
usefulness. 



Among other valued accessions are several volumes, of 
marriages printed from records of a number of parishes in the 
counties of Devon, Essex and Somerset, England, the gift of 
Miss Jane Tuttle; eighteen volumes of Penns\'lvania Archives, 
comprising the fifth and sixth series, from the Pennsylvania

tinental Congress, the issue officially published by the colony, 
printed at Xew London in 1774. 

Another donation of directories of different cities, compris- 
ing eighty-nine volumes, has been received from the Hartford 
Printing Company, Elihu Geer's sons. Numerous valuable 
publications have been received from the officials of this State, 
of the United States, the Library of Congress, the Illinois 
Historical Library, the New Hampshire State Library, the 
Smithsonian Institution, the Royal Society and Geological 
Survey of Canada. 

We have received numerous publications, most of them of a 
minor nature, relating to the great war now in progress in 
Europe, the greater number being from the side of the Entente 
Allies. 

An interesting bibliographic compilation arranged and pre- 
sented by the Bureau of Railway Economics of Washington, 
D. C, is a "Trial Bibliography on the New York. New 
Haven and Hartford Railroad," comprising 144 typewritten 
quarto pages. 

In a cause depending before the Supreme Court of tlie 
United States, entitled " People of the State of New York v. 
Frederick W. Becker as Sheriff," relating to the rights of the 
Seneca Indians under a treaty ratified in 1797. recourse was 
had by the U. S. authorities to manuscripts among our Jercmiaii 
Wadsworth papers, and they were printed as a part oi the 
Government's "brief." 

Eleven additions have been made to our unrivaled collection 
of eighteenth century Connecticut imprints, six of "tliem being 



almanacs. Their dates are 1728, 1765, [1765], 17S1, 17.S2, 

17S3. 1787, 1790, 1793, 1797. 1798- 

The family genealogies added during the year are those of 
Avery, Bassett, Beach, Benjamin, Caldwell, Church, Clafiin, 
Conkling, Crosby, Eames, Fletcher, Goodwin- Morgan Ances- 
try, Grant, Haines, Hallock, Hazart, Hodsdon, Hord, Hough- 
ton, Johnson, Kimball, Lake, Lewis, Lyon, Morgan, Morrell, 
Newberry, Newton, Page, Pepperrell, Pomeroy, Richardson, 
Salisbury Memorials, Savage, Scovil, Spelman, Stratton, Trow- 
bridge, Van Culenborg, Webster, Willard, Williams Ancestry; 
making forty-two in all. These vary in size from a chart of a 
single sheet to five large quarto volumes. Since the publica- 
tion, nearly five years ago, of our list of family genealogies, 
nearly two hundred have been added to the library. 

With the income from the Charles J. Hoadly Fund there 
have been purchased: 

Records and files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County, Mass., 
vol, 4, 1667-1671. 

Webster, W. H. & M. R. History and Genealogy of the Gov. John 
Webster family. 

Income from the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund has been 
expended in the purchase of the following nine volumes of 
records: 

Vital records of Gardiner, Maine, 2 vols. 

Vital records of Boxborough, Mass. 

Vital records of Burlington, Mass. 

Vital records of Cambridge, Mass., vol. 2. 

Vital records of Chelsea, Mass. 

Vital records of Salisbury, Mass. 

Vital records of Topsfield, Mass., vol. 2. 

Vital records of Westford, ]Mass. 

The vital records of Greenfield, Mass., was purchased with 
income from the William F\ J. Boardman Fund, and to the 
Goldthwaite Fund is credited the History and genealogy oi 
one line from Capt. Edward Johnson, by A. Johnson. 

Owing to the absence of any large gifts of books or pam- 
phlets, the accessions for the year fall considerably below the 
number for last year. The donations amount to 409 volumes, 
477 pamphlets and 25 miscellaneous; the purchases to So 
volumes, 88 pamphlets and 14 miscellaneous; the exchanges 
to one volume and 27 miscellaneous. These make a total of 



550 volumes, 565 pamphlets and 66 miscellaneous, or a grand 
total of 1,181 items. Included in the above purchases are nine 
volumes credited to tlie Lucy A. Rrainard Hook Fund, two to 
the Charles J. Hoadly Fund, one to the William F. J. Board- 
man Fund and one to the Goldthwaite Fund. 

Prices of books during the last few years, as of almost 
everything else, have had a steady upward tendency, and in 
consequence, where a fixed sum is available from year to year 
for purchases, the number of books purchased has declined. 

The number of readers using our library during the year is 
3,404, a variation of less than one per cent, from the previous 
year. 

Our collection of early Connecticut newspapers has been 
increased b}- the addition of a file of the Norwich Packet from 
Jan. 3, 1793, to Feb. 13, 1794. We previously had a file for the 
year 1800. Twenty-seven issues of the Connecticut Journal 
were added to the valuable but incomplete file described in my 
report of two years ago. Since the breaking out of the War 
with Spain in 1S9S the publishers of both the Hartford 
Courant and Hartford Times have sent us their daily issues 
for binding and preservation; and our renewed thanks are 
extended to the publishers of both newspapers for this courtesy. 

The manuscripts received during the year, while not as 
numerous as some years, have included a number of interest- 
ing items. They are:

The "Journal Notes of Alonzo Jackman," who in later life 
became Brigadier General of the Second Vermont Infantr>-, 
deserve further mention. The first part contains a condensed 
genealogy of his branch of the Jackman family from the early 
days of the settlement of Newbury, Mass. Part two gives " the 
prominent events of my (his) lite." This gives details of his 
boyhood in Vermont; his life as a young man in the stone 
quarries of Portland, Conn.: his trips to r)l'.io and New 
Orleans; his connection for many years with Norwich. \*t., 
University as military instructor, and his journq>- in 1840 to 
California and Oregon. His "Domestic Journal." which 
forms a third part, describes his happy married life and Iiis 



great grief over the death of his wife. Altogether it foniis 
an interesting biographical sketch. 

In March the Society received under the will of the late 
E. Dwight Farnham of South Windsor the collection of Indian 
stone implements and utensils gathered by him in the vicinity 
of his home during the last forty or more years. This is the 
largest and most important gift of "Indian relics" ever 
received by the Society. The most interesting and important 
specimen in the collection is a large stone bowl or dish, one of 
the largest ever found in New England, which was dug up in 
East Hartford about 1886. The material from which this is 
made is a fine quality of light gray soapstone. The sides are 
made very thin and a long crack had appeared on one side 
while it was still in use by its Indian owners. To lessen the 
chance of further injury they had made two holes on each 
side of the crack, near the rim of the dish, so that it might be 
strengthened by tying together the parts on each side of the 
crack. Its size is about nineteen and one-half inches, long, 
including the projections on each end, which served as handles, 
twelve and one-half inches wide and ten inches high. The 
bottom is rounding, so that it leans to one side. The arrow 
and spear points in the collection number fully one thousand. 
Among them are some of the finest specimens that have been 
found in this vicinity: The larger pieces, axes, celts, pestles 
and the like, together with a few choice small pieces, number 
above one hundred. The axes and celts comprise a typical collec- 
tion of the forms and sizes usually found in this vicinity, while 
among them are a number of choice and beautiful examples. 
Among the small pieces may be mentioned a soapstone bowl 
less than three inches in length but as perfectly formed as any 
larger one, three pipes, two gorgets, a ceremonial axe or ban- 
ner stone, a plummet, an imperfect polished slate arrow point 
such as is occasionally found in New York State, and several 
very small celts and gouges. With a half dozen exceptions, 
all of the specimens are local to South Windsor or the imme- 
diate vicinity. 

Since the Farnham gift was received, Olcott F. Kin^; of 
South Windsor has presented a soapstone dish eight inches in 
length, somewhat injured by the plow, which was recently 
found by him on his farm; and Mrs. A. E. McLean of Tlain- 
ville has presented a handsome polished celt nine inches long. 



found on the Lewis farm in that town. Further additions to 
the Indian collection will be welcomed. 

The Society has received from Miss Agnes H. Bowcn of 
Pleasant Valley, as the bequest of Miss Harriet G. Atwell of 
the same place, a collection of old Connecticut household 
utensils and furnishings of iron, tin and wood. Among them 
are a crane with pot hooks, tongs, frying pan, kettles, waffle 
iron, trivet, slice, mortar, candle molds, tea canister, perforated 
lantern, footstoves, lamps for burning vrliale oil and camphene, 
cake box, " keeler " or small tub, cheese table, "theorem" 
painting and package of ' ' theorems, ' ' which were paper patterns 
cut out and used as stencils, and five woven splint baskets. 
These household utensils of former da\-s are each year becom- 
ing scarcer and more difficult to obtain and we are very glad 
'to receive these articles, with the hope that we may at some 
later date be able to fit up one or more rooms with these 
furnishings used by our ancestors. The five baskets mentioned 
above were made by the Wabbaquassett Indians of Woodstock. 
Four of them have covers, and the three largest are orna- 
mented with designs, markings and stripes in black and red. 
The largest, which is rectangular, measures thirteen by six- 
teen by twenty-one inches. The next in size, which is circular, 
measures eighteen inches in diameter. These four were made 
about 1824. The fifth is shaped for hanging on the wall, and 
was made about 1838. 

Following the gift from Miss Atwell, one of our members, 
Mr. James Shepard, has presented us with the collection of 
more than a dozen baskets gathered by his daughter, now 
deceased. These are all of smaller size than the Woodstock 
baskets. At least half of them are old and of undoubted 
Indian manufacture and presumably of Connecticut origin, 
several bear designs or markings in black or red, and some of 
them are probably near a century old. These two lots make 
a fine beginning for a collection of local Indian basketry, and 
it is hoped that other examples will be added to the collection. 

The Societ\- has been for some years the possessor oi the 
original deed of partition between the patentees of the towns 
of Hartford and Windsor, dated February 11. 1731-2. covering 
the land which now comprises the towns of Torrington, Hark- 
hamsted, Colebrook. Hartland, Winchester, New Hartford 
and Harwinton. This deed is the orii^inal source or basis of 



all titles to land within those towns, and is referred to and 
described at length in the records of the colony; but strange 
to say it had never been entered on record. At the suggt-- 
tion of F. Clarence Bissell we have had it entered on record 
on the public land records in the office of the Secretary of the 
State; and, curiously enough, space for recording it was found 
in the volume in which it would have been entered had it been 
filed for record immediately after being signed 184 years ago. 

The additions to our funds received during the past year 
add to the outlook for the growth of the library in the future. 

Appended to this report, when printed, will be found a List 
of the Family Genealogies added to the library since the 
publication of a previous list five 3^ears ago. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.
